With unemployment numbers still increasingly higher since he first took office, many Americans are finding themselves struggling to now earn the incomes they once had (see our nation's UNDERemployment figures). The cost of energy also is going up, while the push for a new GREEN policy has yet to find a place and take off among many of the nation's consumers. This has only furthered Obama's stubborn resolve to invest more taxpayer dollars into alternative energy corporations, while pushing regulations to cripple those companies that choose to maintain the course of using fossile fuels. With the economy stagnant and still struggling to recover, as well as facing a huge government spending debt to try and pass the blame on, the real question emerges: Is Obama really concerned about jobs, or with the attempt to steer his Titanic to change the face of America to a radically new direction, where left-wing ideology rules with an iron fist? Wtih regard to coal: As of 2008, coal fuels about 50 percent of US electricity production and provides about a quarter of the countrys total energy. Then there's the rejection by Obama and the left of the Keystone pipeline, siting unemployment extensions creates more jobs. Has the administration really fought to put Americans back to work, or is he using his Presidency as a bully platform to dictate what Americans must be willing to accept dispite the effect it may have to a crippling economy?
